BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVE Raddeanin A, a triterpenoid saponin from Anemone raddeana Regel, has good antitumor activity in vitro. This study was to investigate its antitumor effects on tumor cell xenografts in mice. METHODS The inhibitory effects of raddeanin A on the proliferation of human nasopharyngeal carcinoma KB cells and ovarian cancer SKOV3 cells were(More)
Two new oleanane-type triterpenoid saponins, gymnemoside-W1 and W2, together with seven known compounds were isolated from the leaves of Gymnema sylvestre R. Br. By means of spectral and chemical analysis, the structures of the new compounds were elucidated as 16 beta-hydroxyl olean-12-en-3-O-[beta-D-glucopyranosyl(More)
An ultra performance liquid chromatography (UPLC) coupled with quadrupole time-of-flight mass spectrometry (QTOF-MS) procedure is designed for the first simultaneous analysis of nortriterpenoids and lignans in Schisandra samples. The method consists of three individual mass spectrometric experiments, including the full scan MS, MS/MS experiment and(More)
Four new compounds including three bicoumarins, arteminorins A-C (1-3), and one neolignan, arteminorin D (4), together with 31 known ones were isolated from the aerial parts of Artemisia minor. Their structures were established on the basis of spectroscopic data and comparison with those of the related known compounds. Ethyl caffeate (27) showed in vitro(More)
A statistic approach using response surface methodology (RSM) for optimization of the ultra-high performance liquid chromatography (UHPLC) gradient and ionization response of electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (ESI-MS) to analyze the main alkaloids from the plant matrices of six Meconopsi species is presented. The optimization was performed with(More)
A new phenyl glycoside, scrophenoside D (1) and a new phenylethyl glycoside, scroside F (2), together with three known phenylethyl glycosides, scroside A (3), plantainoside D (4), and plantamajoside (5), were isolated from the stems of Picrorhiza scrophulariiflora. Their structures were elucidated by spectroscopic and chemical methods.
Osteoporosis is a major age-related source of morbidity and mortality. Increased bone resorption mediated by osteoclasts is central to its pathogenesis. Cytokines, particularly RANKL and TNFalpha, are often increased under pathologic conditions, leading to enhanced osteoclastogenesis. Black cohosh (Actaea/Cimicifuga racemosa L), a popular herbal supplement(More)
A novel bradykinin-potentiating peptide (BPP), designated as TmF, has been purified to homogeneity from the venom of Trimeresurus mucrosquamatus by 70% cold methanol extraction, Sephadex G-15 gel filtration and reverse-phase high performance liquid chromatography (RP-HPLC). The amino acid sequence of TmF was determined to be(More)
ETHNOPHARMACOLOGICAL RELEVANCE Notopterygium incisum used as an antirheumatic and analgesic medicine for the treatment of rheumatism, headache, cold, etc., is not only a traditional Qiang medicine, but also a traditional Tibetan remedy for thousands of years. AIM OF THE STUDY In order to use this herbal medicine in a more effective way, in the present(More)
[structure: see text] An unprecedented triterpene alkaloid glycoside, designated cimicifugadine (1), with a pyridine ring incorporated to a cycloartane triterpenoid nucleus, was isolated from the roots of Cimicifuga foetida. Its structure was established on the basis of extensive spectroscopic measurements and chemical transformation with the absolute(More)
